The National Sales & Marketing Executives™ (NSME) of Akron/Canton recognized the 2017 winners of the Accent on Excellence™ awards on February 28 for demonstrating the highest levels of professionalism during their careers in sales and marketing. Our own Jacquie Mazziotta was one of the honorees for excelling in her current role of providing public relations and marketing communications strategy for several clients in the manufacturing, retail and commercial building industries at WRL Advertising.
Prior to her current role, Jacquie worked in education with several school district superintendents in Summit County as well as with educational leaders at the state level on messaging development and strategy. A champion for public education, she served as communications director for Stow-Munroe Falls City School district where she was vital to the passage of a new $6 million levy as well as a $5 million renewal campaign. There, she spearheaded the implementation of social media combined with multi-faceted marketing strategies, leading communications efforts into the digital era.
The NSME Achievements in Excellence awards recognize the best practitioners in the sales and marketing profession. Winners are selected by NSME leaders, based on nominations from local professionals. Criteria include professional experience and demonstrated performance, as well as community and civic involvement.
